Best Buy in Twin Falls (and Boise) is offering new recycling services that fill in some gaps we experience with our local recycling services. It doesn't matter where you bought the items and no purchase is required. Here is a list of items you can take to their store for recycling (most are free; any charges are noted):
Best Buy will take tube TV's up to 32" and flat screens up to 60". The brands Insignia, Dynex and VPR Matrix are accepted for free. Best Buy charges $10 to recycle any other brand of TV, but they instantly give you a $10 gift card in exchange.
DVD Players, home and car audio systems, computer cables, peripherals, small electrics, fans and vacuum cleaners: all recycled for free at Best Buy. Best Buy in Boise also has a trade-in program where you can exchange many small electronic items for gift cards.
Computers are, of course, accepted for recycling at Ohio Gulch, but if cleaning the hard drive concerns you, Best Buy has a Geek Squad video you can watch online on how to remove it.
